Our Future Golfer (Trendy Tot Tuesday Link Up)

We had a fun, family day on Saturday. We drove an hour and a half to Jeff's Aunt's house and got in some pool time and a little golf with family.
It took Rocco a while to warm up to everyone. And by a while I mean two hours. He only wanted to be with his Mama which was kinda frustrating and embarrassing at the time. No one wants their kid to be the cry baby that screams the second anyone else tries to hold them or talk to them. Now that I  look back on the situation I realize that he was just scared of new people, a new place and a very large tub (swimming pool). Poor guy :(
Eventually he did warm up to everyone and was quite the little ham. He also found his way on to the putting green and had a blast trying to hit the ball into the hole.

A Work in Progress 2

Every four weeks or so I take progress photos and measurements. I find that it's helpful to have something to look back on and see how far I've come. I usually do it the first Friday of every month and I am going to try and post my photos on here for two reasons; one, to help me stay accountable and two, to maybe help others get off their asses and start moving. You can see my last progress post here.
April '13 & May '13 down 4 more pounds
This is the most weight I have dropped in one month in a long time. I attribute it to Asylum and making better food choices. I didn't stick to my goal of taking my lunch to work everyday, but I did eat as clean as possible. 
I also started drinking Shakeology again for breakfast. HUGE help! It's fast, easy and I love the taste. I've been drinking the chocolate flavor mixed with unsweetened almond milk and I LOVE IT!
Leave me a comment or email me if you'd like me to help you get moving and reach your goals!

May Goals

Last month I set a handful of goals and I did pretty well at keeping them. You can check them out here.

I kinda failed at the meal prep so I went out to lunch A LOT during the week. I tried to be as healthy and clean as I could, so I stuck to salads with lemon juice rather than dressing. I also took a few sips of soda from my hubby when he wasn't looking. And every time I did it I remember thinking, "this Coke is gross... WAY too sweet!"
I also shopped, but in my defense Target was having too good a sale on their Champion Sports bras to pass up. And my old ones were starting too look a little raggedy and were fitting a little big on me.
I totally rocked the rest of the goals on my list! And I think it had a lot to do with my four pound weight loss for the month (progress photos later on this week)

So since setting goals worked so well last month I'm setting some more for May....

1. No shopping... After today. (Today I bought some much need workout shorts)
2. Meal prep during the work week
3. Eat out once a week
4. No soda
5. Only 1-2 cocktails a week (weekends only)
6. Run at least 10 miles a week
7. Work on being more organized and neat
8. One cheat meal a week

What are some of your goals? I'd love to hear from you :)
